I used to crochet doilies with thread. Loved it. Gave them away at Christmas and people were like "oh, nice". No one appreciates the work that goes into something like that.

Now I keep most everything I do.

I have about 5 inches of a black lace scarf done! It's going faster than I thought!

Yea I know what u mean. I've only given scarfs to my mom, grandma and my 2 close cousins. Is it really hard to make doilies with the crochet thread ?

Not if you keep good track of your place in the pattern and start with a simple one.

I like working with crochet thread better than working with yarn. It's a little easier to control, I think.

This isn't mine but this is what entrelac looks like.
